Do you have small items around your house that are broken, or need repair?

Perhaps your favorite pair of jeans needs to be patched, or an old digital camera has salvageable parts? Don’t just throw them out – let us help you figure out how to fix them!

We’ll have a sewing machine, electronics parts, jewelry parts, hand tools, and more on hand, as well as some inventive librarians who will be happy to investigate the more complex problems with you.

Disclaimer: We’ll do our best to help, but we cannot guarantee that your object will be fixed.

Drop by anytime between 4 – 7:00 p.m. Attendance at this event is first come, first served.

The Library is partnering with the The Make/Fix Anything Project, an ongoing practice about our ability to self-educate. More specifically it is an assertion that you can make or fix nearly anything. The make/fix anything project will help you and develop a living, learning community.

The Church at Clarendon Celebrates its 109th Church Anniversary Celebration on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at our 11am service. Twenty-three members organized the church in 1909 as the First Baptist Church of Clarendon. The first church building was completed in 1915, and an education building was added in 1936. The church acquired their present parsonage in the 1950s and built a new education building in the 1960s. In mid-2000s, the church building underwent a radical transformation, tearing down the sanctuary and rebuilding a multi-use building with eight stories of apartments on top of the church sanctuary, a welcome hall, offices, and classrooms. As part of the church ministry and commitment to the community, 60 percent of the units are designated as affordable housing for low-income tenants. The church steeple remains in place, a beacon that shows the building is a place of worship.
